- We foster a diverse and welcoming school community where everyone can thrive.
- We oppose racism and other systemic injustices, working to build an HKS and a world with respect and dignity for all.
- We—faculty, staff, students, and alumni—work together to make strategic and fundamental changes to support diversity, equity, and anti-racism.
